Electrolytic manganese dioxide is the important component of the cathode material in modern alkaline, sodium batteries, and lithium including electrochemical capacitors and hydrogen production. Considering the overall environmental hazards and cost, electrolytic manganese dioxide is likely to persist as an ideal energy material during future period, as it has been in recent decades. Shrinking fossil fuels sources and growing fuel prices around the world have created the critical need to find sustainable energy sources. Electrolytic manganese dioxide is being widely used for lithium manganese primary batteries. Owing to its wide advantages such as less production cost, high redox potential, long storage life, high rate capability, optimum performance over a wide temperature range, and environmental compatibility many battery manufacturers are largely focusing on this material. Also compared to other metal oxides like cobalt-oxides and nickel, electrolytic manganese dioxide is less hazardous to environment and comparatively less expensive which makes it preferred material in the electronic market.
Various material types of electrolytic manganese dioxide market are battery, and others. Battery material type is further divided in alkaline battery grade, zinc manganese battery grade, lithium-ion batteries. Batteries generally uses electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD), which has wide application in the primary battery market. Also, electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD) used in the manufacturing of batteries. Electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD) is a material which is used in modern alkaline, lithium, and sodium batteries. While considering others application electrolytic manganese dioxide (EMD) is mostly used in water treatment process.
Some of the major key players in the market include Tosoh Corporation, Euro Manganese Inc., American Manganese Inc., Prince International Corporation, Mesa Minerals Limited, Golden Mile GmbH, Citic dameng, Xiangtan Electrochemical Scientific Ltd., Guangxi Jingxi County Yizhou Manganese Industry Co., Ltd., and Borman Specialty Materials among others.
